After our walk to see the owletts, Lynda mentioned that her husband had informed her that flying squirrels were living in a nesting box on the property. Lynda gently tapped the box with her walking stick and out popped not one, but two flying squirrels.
I had never seen one up close and personal, but these were simply adorable…..I can easily understand why folks have begun keeping Sugar Gliders as pets….
Here, Rocky peeps around the tree trunk to see if we’re still nearby.
In this shot you can see the flaps of skin that allow the squirrel to glide.
We create artistic images of our encounters with nature and our blog is a journal of our experiences. All of our images are free to download and use for educational use, presentations and personal printing usage. (please make sure to leave our credits intact)!
